The entire Gesu community mourns the loss of Ms. Shirley Bright, long-tenured 3rd grade Teacher and Director of the Akybra Theater Program and the award-winning Gesu Forensics Team. Ms. Bright touched the lives of so many students in her 25-year career and service to Gesu. We remember her joyful spirit, her passion for teaching, and her genuine love for Gesu School.
A Gesu alum herself, Ms. Bright was a member of the Class of 1961, a graduate of John C. Hallahan High School in 1965, and Bethune-Cookman University.
The entire Gesu School family has been blessed for many years by Ms. Bright's love and commitment. We extend our sincere condolences to Ms. Bright’s family and friends.
We celebrate the life of Ms. Bright, a true champion of Gesu School.
